The east side of the Clare Valley is the Polish Hill River district that could easily satisfy the criteria for registration as a subregion. There is a greater focus, coupled with a finer structure, that allows the full expression of the varietal fruit to come through on the light to medium-bodied foundation.
"Ripe plum and black cherry fruit with hints of mocha, graphite and some spicy notes as well. A nice little touch of cherry. French oak in the background mix. Medium bodied with the ripe, dark fruits to the fore with balanced acidity and savory tannins giving length and structure to the wine.Clare Valley Shiraz often flies under the radar, but the region produces excellent wines year in year out that offer good drinking and the ability to age slowly and gracefully. Drink now and the next 7 -10 years."- Winery
